This course describes Bayesian statistics, in which one's inferences about parameters or hypotheses are updated as evidence accumulates. You will learn to use Bayes’ rule to transform prior probabilities into posterior probabilities, and be introduced to the underlying theory and perspective of the Bayesian paradigm. The course will apply Bayesian methods to several practical problems, to show end-to-end Bayesian analyses that move from framing the question to building models to eliciting prior probabilities to implementing in R (free statistical software) the final posterior distribution. Additionally, the course will introduce credible regions, Bayesian comparisons of means and proportions, Bayesian regression and inference using multiple models, and discussion of Bayesian prediction.

Principales reseñas sobre ESTADÍSTICA BAYESIANA
The course is compact that I've learnt a lot of new concepts in a week of coursework. A good sampler of topics related to Bayesian Statistics.
I wanted to tools for Bayesian Statistics to be as functional as the other tools available. No problem with the class. I think the material will get there for R.
The course could have been more comprehensive and less verbose. It had so much content in a tiny course. Content should be less and more comprehensive.
This course and the others that are part of the specialization are excellent. Those of us who are beginners in Bayesian Statistics may find the material a bit confusing.
